Foodies, mark your calendars — the signature Japanese sponge cakes from Fukusaya Castella, a confectionery brand founded in 1624 in Nagasaki prefecture, Kyushu island, will hit our shores on August 20 at Isetan Scotts Supermarket. Keep your eye out for its display booth near the supermarket's entrance. Fukusaya is famous for its so perfect-looking it’s almost unreal kasutera (Japanese castella cake). We're fans — we hardly ever left Tokyo or Fukuoka without carting home a few boxes of the tasty bakes when leisure travelling was still a thing.
Besides Taiwan, Singapore is the only country to sell Fukusaya’s castella outside of Japan.
